On the hunt for a tried and true at-home hair color line to help you switch up your mane all on your own? Look no further than L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference! This permanent hair color kit, which offers an array of blonde, red, brown, black, and metallic (!) hair colors, won’t let you down. Of course, with so many gorgeous shades to choose from, how’s a gal to pick just one? We’ve got good news for you—picking your hair color match has never been easier thanks to our L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference hair color chart! From copper to honey blonde, we’re helping you narrow things down by sharing the perfect hair color for you, based on your skin tone.
If you don’t already know, it’s seriously important to consider your skin tone when choosing a new color for your mane. Your skin tone and undertones play a huge role in what hues will be most flattering—and who doesn’t want that? We’ll break down the details on the best shades for your skin tone, but don’t forget to keep your undertones in mind as well. If you have warm undertones, opt for a hair color that has cool undertones. If you have cool undertones, switch up your hair with a color that has warm undertones. Opposites attract!
Not sure what your undertones are? Flip your wrist and take a look at your veins. If you have blue or purple veins, you have cool undertones. If you have green veins, you have warm undertones. Got it? Now that we’ve got your undertones sorted out, let’s get to the best Superior Preference hair colors for your skin tone!
Tempted to find out if blondes really do have more fun? While there are some seriously gorgeous blonde hair colors to choose from, there are certain shades that suit your skin tone best. Here are the best blonde hair colors for every skin tone:
If you have a fair skin tone…try an ash blonde hair color. Ashy manes are all the rage at the moment, so why not try an ash blonde? This soft blonde hue will complement your fair skin. Thanks to its cool base, it’s best for those with warm undertones. Try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Ash Blonde.
If you have a medium skin tone…try a light beige blonde. This near-platinum shade will give your beauty look a flattering contrast. Use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Extra Light Ash Blonde to get the look.
If you have an olive skin tone…try a honey or golden blonde. This warm hue won’t look overly harsh against your olive complexion, and instead will add warmth to your overall look. Give the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Golden Blonde a try.
If you have a deep skin tone…try a dark ash blonde. Your deep skin tone will look best with a darker blonde hue, and luckily that doesn’t preclude you from participating in one of 2019’s biggest hair color trends. Coloring your hair with a dark ash blonde shade will result in a mushroom blonde mane—AKA one of the hottest hair hues at the moment. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Dark Ash Blonde to get on-trend tresses.
Red more your style? We’ve got your match! Here are the best red Superior Preference shades, according to your skin tone.
If you have a fair skin tone…try a light auburn hair color. A more natural red hair color option, this hue won’t be too harsh against your light skin. Give the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Light Auburn a shot.
If you have a medium skin tone…try a deep red hue. This rich color will create a beautiful contrast against your medium skin. Its cool base makes it best suited for those with warm undertones. Use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Intense Dark Red to get the look.
If you have an olive skin tone…try an auburn hue. This warm red color will look rich against your olive skin. It’s also a great option for those who prefer a subtler red mane. Try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Chic Auburn Brown.
If you have a deep skin tone…try an auburn brown shade. The brown base of this color will complement your deep skin tone. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Medium Auburn Brown.
Calling all wannabe brunettes—this one’s for you. Here are our top Superior Preference brown hair color picks, based on your skin tone.
If you have a fair skin tone…try a light ash brown hair color. Reminiscent of the mushroom brown hair color trend (not to be confused with mushroom blonde), we have a feeling you’ll love this shade, especially if you have warm undertones. Try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Cool Light Brown.
If you have a medium skin tone…try a golden brown shade. This caramel-esque hue will add just enough warmth for those with cool undertones. Give the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Hi-Lift Gold Brown a try.
If you have an olive skin tone…try a rich, mocha brown. This color looks best on those with warm undertones. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Cool Medium Brown to color your ‘do.
If you have a deep skin tone…try a cool dark brown shade for an ultra-chic look. Best for those with warm undertones, the dark color will provide a flattering contrast against your deep skin. Use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Cool Darkest Brown to get the look.
Want to go to the dark side? If you’re contemplating a black mane, there’s a lot more to it than the classic jet black hue you’re likely picturing. Below, find your black hair color match.
If you have a fair skin tone…try a soft black. This will still give you that contrast you crave without being too harsh against your light skin. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Soft Black.
If you have a medium skin tone…try a blue-black hair color. The blue undertones of this black hair color option will put a fun (yet subtle) twist on a traditional black mane, and will be extra flattering for those with warm undertones. Use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Deep Blue Black to get the look.
If you have an olive skin tone…try black sapphire. Another blue-based back, this cool hue will beautifully complement the warm undertones of your olive skin. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Black Sapphire.
If you have a deep skin tone…try a deep black hue. The blackest of blacks will be most flattering against your deep skin tone! Give the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Ultimate Black a try.
Metallic shades are all the rage this year, and anyone can join in on the fun. To turn heads with your hair color, all you need to do is find your metallic match. Here’s the best metallic Superior Preference shade for your skin tone.
If you have a fair skin tone…try a silver hair color. One of the hottest hair trends of 2019, this is the perfect hue for those who want to be a total trendsetter. Use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying + Shine Permanent Hair Color in Soft Silver Blonde.
If you have a medium skin tone…try going gold. A golden blonde shade is the perfect subtle way to embrace the metallic hair color trend, plus it will look absolutely stunning set against your skin tone. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Light Golden Blonde to see what we mean.
If you have an olive skin tone…try a copper shade. You’ve likely seen this trendy hair color circulating your social media feeds—and for good reason! The warm hue is perfect for those with cool undertones. Use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Intense Red Copper to color your hair.
If you have a deep skin tone… try a rose gold hue. This trendy hair color looks best on people with cool undertones. It’s also a great option for anyone who wants to try something that’s out of the box without steering too far outside of their comfort zone. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference in Dark Rose Blonde to try it for yourself.
